Wrongful Dismissal
Employees who are dismissed in breach of their employment contract may be able to successfully claim at an Employment Tribunal for wrongful dismissal.

Most commonly, employment tribunal claims for wrongful dismissal arise where an employee is dismissed without the requisite notice period or in breach of an employer's policy which forms part of the employee's contract e.g. an attendance procedure or disciplinary procedure.

Claims for wrongful dismissal, as with all claims for breach of contract, can be presented in the Employment Tribunal (to a maximum value of £25,000) or in the Civil Courts (County Court or High Court).

It is unnecessary for employees to establish any length of service for a wrongful dismissal claim.

If you think you have been wrongfully dismissed, phone Ashley Hunt, Vaishali Thakerar or Carrie-Ann Randall on 0116 212 1000 or complete the form on the right. Lawson-West, solicitors and employment law specialists, offer a free initial consultation so it won't cost you a penny to find out whether you have a claim for wrongful dismissal.
